In April 2012, Australia's Koalas were added to the 'Vulnerable' category by our government. That means koalas are"a species considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild."
No wonder Exotics Vet Dr Jayne Weller is passionate about saving every single koala she comes across!
Her latest patient arrived at ARH suffering from Sarcoptic mange, a highly contagious mite infection. Dr Jayne from Sydney's Animal Referral Hospital explains how the Koala came into her care, what she is doing to help its recovery and what its potential future looks like.
